Remove big ships from the game. Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hi, I've been looking at population numbers and they don't look so good. So I have a suggestion to remove bigger ships for example War Frigate and Grand Frigate. Because there really never used for anything and the playerbase cannot contain these ships on a daily basis compared to a War Brig.

I wouldn't go that far, in the last 7 days, I've been on 2 fully loaded War Frig Atlantis runs. Blockades especially make use of War Frigs almost on a weekly basis. As for Grand Frigs, despite my objection to Greedy Bashing, it is an activity a significant portion of the population participate in and quite enjoy, using the Grand Frig. It would be quite unfair to simply deprive them of their fun (without a viable alternative being provided that is).

Please no! I use a LOT of war and grand frigs, on a daily basis. They're wonderful for moving large quantities of commods like wood and cane and hemp, and make great floating storage sheds.

I don't think its an idea that would ever be pursued, simply because of the "Cost" of acquiring those ships if we choose to ignore use today. How would people be repaid for their ships?, ships cost dubs, dubs need $$, do people get their cash back? What about paint and decorations done to those ships. It's feels like an idea that would be quite impossible to implement. I can imagine the chaos that would ensue if people log on to find their fleet of 100 War Frigs vanished

In addition to what the others have said, this is just from my personal pov:

I don't have a Grand Frig yet (still saving up), but I use a War Frig (and other big ships) for storage mostly. The biggest ship I moved recently (for trade & transferring commods) is a War Galleon.

So, for me, please don't remove the big ships. I see no need. If you don't use them, don't buy and use them. Let those who do, do. Thank ye!

there are stuffs in the game that do not break, nor affect game play, nor affect any player even if the ocean's population dropped below 50 at peak hours

big ship being one of them

absolute no reason to remove big ship just bcos some players don't know what to do with them - mommawolf cited great way to use them

absolute no reason to remove big ship just bcos someone doesn't have / couldn't afford to buy one

absolute no reason to remove big ship just bcos others are having fun sailing them solo or with a couple of close friends, and not jobbing ye

its certainly not fair to remove these trophies from the reach of those who are still working towards getting them

.. unless ye are saying, lets also remove those trophies from those who has already earn them as part of the "remove big ship from game" exercise, that would be absolute nonsense!

stan gave very good reason why its not practical

if anything at all, keeping these big ships are good fer GH bcos it cost 75 dubs and 100 dubs in delivery fer warfrig & grandfrig

oh wait.. ocean population is dwindling... lets also remove estates, galleries and grandiose crew hall

or better yet, eventually there won't be need fer shoppes bcos there's nothing that a deluxe stall can't make, so lets remove shoppes from the game as well?

You have apparently missed my point. Please allow me to make it more clear:

Your correction of the other poster's grammar was, itself, ungrammatical, misspelled, et cetera. Your position, per the proverbial idiom, is that of the pot calling the kettle black.

No, my degree in English does that.

Roughly in order:

1. To chastise you for and/or expose to all your hypocrisy, in pointing out the mote in your fellow poster's eye while ignoring the beam in your own. (It's a parable, Matthew 7:1-5, look it up.)

2. This thread was (in my opinion) going nowhere fast, certainly to no productive place. I disagree with your assertion that removing big ships would be good for what remains of the game, and (also in my opinion) Ryujin - who I had no trouble understanding, for all that his grammar and spelling were very slightly worse than yours - gave a fairly good explanation of some of the reasons why. I also agree with Ryujin that your proposal is selfish, and that you are thinking primarily or only of yourself; however, that is a fairly common thing, and neither here nor there.

3. Whether your idea is good or not, I doubt that it would be implemented. The game has clearly entered "maintenance mode", and I question whether anyone remains on Grey Havens' staff who is capable, let alone interested, of making such changes to the code. Like it or not, what you see is (still in my opinion) all you are likely to get, until the thus-far-delayed-but-still-inevitable shutdown. Enjoy it while it lasts, as much as you can.

4. I was bored. Now I am slightly less so. Thank you for providing me with this opportunity.

That has nothing to do with this post, this was an opinion not insulting others which you have just done, so therefore you've exposed your own hypocrisy.

Don't understand why you didn't just post this the first time.
